    MOBI army of tennessee.co ê Carjacked eBook ó carjacked epub, Carjacked EpubThe best book I read this week was the non fiction book Carjacked Having been a fan of Catherine Lutz’s academic works I found Carjacked to be an interesting and successful collaboration with her sister Anne Lutz Fernandez As a matter of fact I couldn’t imagine a better platform to write about America’s entrenched love affair with car culture than an anthropologist and a former corporate executiveI’ll be upfront my reading Carjacked was like preaching to the choir I’ve been telling my friends for years that I’m not anti car I’m anti car culture and everything that comes with cars The traffic the strip malls the

    MOBI army of tennessee.co ê Carjacked eBook ó carjacked epub, Carjacked EpubThis book is of a 355 star read Not uite a four but really above average I purchased this book after going to a talk by the authors They made a convincing case for their argument that North American car culture needs to be reformed I think that the most interesting part of this book the part that really made me analyze my own values was the discussion of advertising and cars as a status symbol Though I drive a late '90s model Toyota Tercel that doesn't even have power windows and therefore you wouldn't think I'm someone who cares about what my car looks like I realize that I do have a personal image of myself that is wrapped up in what kind of car I wish I drove I mean it would still be sensible small and not very flashy but until reading this book my ideal car would have a good stereo be sporty be younger I now uestion those values upon realizing that they have simply been sold to me by advertising I thought I was immune to Yeah right Now I'm trying to not care about my ugly

    MOBI army of tennessee.co ê Carjacked eBook ó carjacked epub, Carjacked Epub Carjacked is a bit dated as a research and policy book seven years old but it continually came up in my suggestions for books about urban planning It does have some good research some good insights but I do wish it had recommendationsCar culture has not improved since Carjacked was written and the lack of monies made available for projects in the wake of the Great Recession has not helped mattersMy home state for example has decreased its investment in public transportation instead making it unaffordable to ride and less stops which ultimately make it an extremely inconvenient way to travelHopefully we as a society can find the will to implement solutions for the betterment of all

    MOBI army of tennessee.co ê Carjacked eBook ó carjacked epub, Carjacked EpubAn interesting examination of car culture in America Appropriately solutions focused though occasionally a bit depressing My favorite part of this book was the personal anecdotes gleaned from the authors' years of interviews with car owners from around the country which lent credibility and charisma to their arguments

    MOBI army of tennessee.co ê Carjacked eBook ó carjacked epub, Carjacked EpubThis is a meticulousy researched and interviewed paean to the compelling power of the car The authors spend the last 10% of the book suggesting alternatives to using the car uite so much but the star of this book is overwhelmingly the car in trafficI did appreciate much of the researched information herein though I had never seen an estimate of the number of parking spaces 105 million or the average time spent in a car 185 hours a week These are great stats I just wish the authors had used stats than vignettes to make their arguments

    MOBI army of tennessee.co ê Carjacked eBook ó carjacked epub, Carjacked EpubOk so this is an interesting book Interesting yeslife altering nowell at least not for meWhile I will say that this book takes a figurative and literally heavy topic and makes it approachable this just wasn't a book I enjoyed There are some great points but for me personally nothing was ground breakingit is far too general for that That being said this could be a great book for book clubs or beginning environmentalistssocial activists to jump start their dialogue
